I have a Pioneer DV-610AV, which I want to use for SACD and DVD-A discs.
I have a vintage quadraphonic 4-channel amplifier, but no subwoofer and no center channel. So, I went into options and disabled the center channel and the subwoofer. I am using the analog audio outputs on the back (just four, L, R, SL, SR).
For DTS audio (Queen: A Night at the Opera) and SACD (Pink Floyd: DSOTM) this is fine. But for DVD-Audio (The Doors Perception Box set), there are no vocals present. The center channel is not mixed into the left and right channels.
Also, I notice no difference for DTS or SACD if I disable the center channel or leave it on, which may mean those aren't getting mixed either, but the vocals are just present on the left and right tracks to begin with.
My old Samsung HD841 resampled perfectly fine to the left and right channels. But it didn't support DTS, so I replaced it with this pioneer (which was also nice since all of my other gear is pioneer).
Am I missing something here? I'd like to use the Pioneer, but if I can't play my doors discs, it's getting chucked in the trash.
